    I don't like anyone beating the Lakers in the west if LeBron and AD are, like, 90%. LeBron's not going to have the luxury of tuning back up against Eastern conference weaklings, but still hard to imagine any team beating them 4 times.

    Pretty much the same in the East with the Nets, although all 3 need to be firing.

    Would be disappointing if it's Nets-Lakers only because neither team has been healthy all year.
    Iím in same boat. Itís probably Lakers if close to 100%. I think the Nets might not even NEED all 3 if Harden is healthy. He seems to make either work. If he was out, then Iím less sure. In general, almost nothing will surprise me.

    Itís weird where baseball seems to be back to normal and last year was the weird year, whereas this is the weird year in the NBA coming back so soon and no bubble. So many injuries and hardly anyone outside Jokic playing most games. I feel like I have no idea of the relative health or chemistry of many of these teams.

    Kyrie is just the gift that keeps on giving. Just exactly what you want to hear out of the guy youíre paying $34 million per year to play basketball as the playoffs start.


    ďThe Brooklyn Nets are about to begin their postseason pursuit of an NBA championship, but Kyrie Irving says he's currently focused on issues other than basketball.

    Irving declined to answer game-related questions Saturday after Brooklyn's 105-91 victory over the Chicago Bulls and made multiple references to the ongoing violence between Israel and Palestine.


    "I'm not going to lie to you guys, a lot of stuff is going on in this world, and basketball is just not the most important thing to me right now," Irving said. "There's a lot of things going on overseas. All our people are still in bondage across the world, and there's a lot of dehumanization going on.Ē

    I feel like Kyrie would benefit greatly from micro-dosing LSD.

    The NBA has kind of dug their own grave with this player empowerment. Kyrie might just be the tip of an incoming iceberg. Next will be Cade Cunningham taking a personal leave to help migrants at the border or something.

    NFL coaches must laugh at this, and make cuck jokes about NBA coaches.

    Feels like a few every generation that are bipolar. In the 90s it was Chris Jackson Mahmood Abdul Rauf with the National Anthem and weird tick, he could get buckets. The NBA coaches and players don't really care what Bill Belichik and Ron Rivera think with their blah football is life philosophy. In their mind what they did with the help of the WNBA in Atlanta Georgia and the push to get people to vote changed the course of our country. I'm not saying it's right or true just an observation. NBA is a very popular sport WorldWide and isn't going anywhere with their opinions so we shall see how it plays out.

    Quick hijack what happened to plop? I made a nice chunk on political bets with his help.. Theres some here in East County SD that still think Trump is Prez

    Lets not forget Magic had Paul Westhead fired after he won a ship and MJ wasn't playing unless Phil was coach. The Superstars have been running the league for decades.

    The Nets rolled the dice with Kyrie. They knew precisely what they were getting. If there was any doubt the average Celtics fan with a Twitter account coulda filled in the gaps.

    success in the playoffs takes grit and toughness in addition to the talent that gets you into the tournament.

    I don’t hate Kyrie. I just think he’s mentally ill. There’s a lot of that in the NBA. Commish Silver has been very candid about it. I like Silver. Good guy I think.

    Kyrie & Harden. Wouldn’t touch it with a ten foot pole but it’ll be fun to follow.

    I think Harden is the most normal of that big 3. Durant is a strange dude as well.

    You will always have Dick and Tom Van Arsdale.

    Kyrie is JUST good enough to warrant dealing with the histrionics. I've ebbed and flowed on this but the guy is a fucking force whenever he is locked in.

    The Nets are legit devoid of leadership unless you count DeAndre Jordan or something; Kyrie is insane, Durant is a beta cuck and Harden doesn't seem to give much of a fuck.

    All of these guys are incredible talents but have always been propped up by other leaders (LeBron, Chris Paul, Draymond Green/Steph Curry, etc).

    Look at what happened to the Kyrie Celtics or the Harden Rockets. OKC was young but blew a 3-1 lead.

    Will be interesting to see how they respond if they go down 2-1 in a series. I want to fade them but no other team entices me to do so. May sprinkle on the 76ers, think there's value there but them winning three rounds just doesn't seem likely.

    Speaking of the Celtics... they are completely irrelevant.

    I just stumbled on this. It’s old but it speaks to my belief Tatum gives zero actual shits about winning and simply cares about his game. Sorta like your characterization of Harden, SloppyJoe.

    The Celtics Working To Get The Black Mamba Poison Out Of Jayson Tatum's Game Is Music To My Fucking Ears

    Brad Stevens is still young but I’m not he can relate to guys like this. He’s screwed.

    Lakers getting beat pretty decisively by the Warriors right now.

    Lebron just 1-for-7 in 1H, with 6 points total.

    Curry not even doing all that hot, though way better than Lebron.

    Can you imagine the embarrassment if the Lakers lose both this and to Memphis, and miss the playoffs, right after winning the NBA Title the year before?
